Educational Boarding Program

MAKE YOUR DOG HAPPY … and obedient

Your dog will learn: advanced obedience with leash, recall with and without a leash, walking by your side without pulling, concentration walk, sit, down, stay, sit and down prolonged stay with distractions; as well as good manners like no longer jumping on people, nibbling, and barking in your presence.

Additionally, with “the Mat command,” your dog will learn to stay on this surface without leaving.

Your dog will also learn how to wait at doors, not to sneak, and especially let you move in and out of the house without being in the way.

After each training session (3 or 4 times a day), he will have play time with his instructor. There, he will learn to play properly and to fetch balls or other toys.

After an educational stay, the family will have to take a private lesson to learn how to communicate properly with their dog. This follow-up is as important as the dog’s stay.

It is possible to take one or more of these classes privately: Kindergarten, Obedience I, II, III.

If your dog has a particular problem, the trainer will gladly make an assessment and recommend the best method to deal with it.

75$ – per half-hour lessons

Private training at your home

Training your companion in the comfort of your home.

Does your dog jump on people or nibble? Perhaps your dog doesn’t heel or come back when you call for him or always pulls on his leash? There is always a solution.

We will focus only on your dog and the difficulties you encounter with him. Training can be done at your home, in your yard or on your dog’s walking route.

180$ – each lesson lasts 1 hour, $25 for each additional 15 minutes.
Transportation/Commuting fees will be added.

Private classes for cleanliness

This theoretical course allows the whole family to be taught the appropriate methods quickly to obtain the necessary guidelines for cleanliness at home, asking for the door and determining the place where the dog can relieve itself. Available to puppies or adult dogs. **

We encourage the entire family to participate in this class to teach cleanliness to your dog. We recommend that every member attends.

85$ – each lesson lasts 45 minutes.

Private "Good Start" classes

Our dog learns to socialize and to acquire good manners:
– Introducing a dog to children
– Hygiene and where to relieve itself
– Good manners at home

Dog Socialization Courses

Does your adult dog become uncontrollable at the sight of other dogs, excessively excited, aggressive, or simply timid? This is a socialization problem, and there are solutions.

Depending on the severity of the problem, a behaviour assessment is necessary to properly target your needs.

These sessions are always under supervision of a professional dog trainer in an indoor dog park. The master and his dog will integrate into the group and learn to keep the harmony with others and above all attain good control to make a good canine citizen.

75$ – with trainer

Home protection training course

To start with, the goal is not to transform the dog into an aggressive or biting animal. The purpose of this course is to give a role to our companion. The dog will be trained to be vigilant within the house and yard in order to react to unwelcomed strangers.

The dog can become a natural guardian. Therein lies the importance of controlling his territorial, hunting and fighting instincts.

Training shows the dog how to properly move its jaw on command and takes care to help the dog not to react to its natural environment, thus avoiding running after a cyclist, jogger, skateboarder, or worse, after a child.

A good guard, a good canine citizen.

180$ – 6 half-hour sessions.
